When I went to the Stockton Market a couple weekends ago, my friend and I had breakfast at Meil’s before doing our marketing.
This was the pear chutney and cheddar cheese omelette. There are lots of accompaniments to choose from (you get 2). I chose fruit (note the yellow raspberry in the saucer), and very good multi-grain toast.
I ordered the omelette because when I first learned to make them, thanks to – who else- Julia Child -, I loved to make jam omelettes. The omelette at Meil’s (a bit pricey at $13) was good, but the chutney got a little watery. However, I was so glad it wasn’t overdone, most omelettes I see go by in restaurants are much too done (i.e. browned) for me, so I almost never order them.
My friend had her favorite, the corn fritters with raspberry mayo ($9.50) that you see below. She added bacon for $5 and that was great bacon! They get it from Maresca’s, the well-known butcher shop in nearby Sergeantsville. We drove by there on our way home, but they are closed on Sunday.
The corn fritters, which appear to be deep-fried, but really were not greasy, were good. Not sure if I like the raspberry mayo, but apparently it’s a hugely popular item at this friendly, funky, restaurant. They have a tempting bakery case just inside the door, too.
Next time, Maresca’s for sure!
